Hello all, i'm new here ! I use a little netbook with bhodi 3.2.1 and it runs very good until now. In my new house, there is a normal wifi from a normal AP, but on my netbook is impossible to see it! I mean, my wifi is invisible on the connection manager! Of course, the wifi is not hide, and i can connect to it from any other devices of my house.

 

On my netbook i also have a partition fo w7 and it can see it and connect to my wifi, so in my opinion this depends on bhodi. 

 

If i run iwconfig wlan0 scan i can't see my wifi neither (but i see the others wifi of my neighborhood).

 

Any suggestoins guy? 

 

Many thanks!





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Does bodhi connect via wifi at all on your netbook? You know free wifi around town.

Wifi drivers are locally bound and Bodhi comes with US drivers/setup. 

I suggest to check on what channel your router sends (somewhere in its settings page) and to set it to something different.

The last two channels are not legal in the US if i recall correcktly, hence it wont search for it IF the wifi is on these channels.

Still nothing. I Can connect to every other wifi in the area but not mine. I also tried to change every Channel but nothing happened at all. Really sad about that.... Any other ideas?

Hmm, this netbook is a bit old I suppose. If your AP is set to only use 5GHz radio signal that won't be seen by a 2.4GHz adapter. That Win7 can see it could be related to the win-driver versus the linux-driver.

Can you check your router if it is set to use dual freqUency or 5GHz only?

Can you provide the outcome of
 sudo lshw -C network 
so we know what wifi-device your netbook uses.

Enjoy,
Charles

Hmm, Broadcom, probably a driver issue.
Can you provide some more info
